WXYZ Detroit - A recent Channel 7 editorial referred to a poll, conducted by Target Insyght, on Chief James Craig's job performance.
Having arrived in Detroit 4 months ago, the results of this survey concluded that 66% of the 500 respondents liked the job he's doing, while 16% did not. Channel 7 seemed to take issue with those who didn't like Chief Craig, because he was appointed by (Detroit) Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr.
Detroit no longer has an elected form of governance. Residents feel rejected, and have a right to feel that way. Channel 7 is wrong to criticize and should be more understanding of Detroit and it's residents.
